The air is becoming crisper and
the geese are starting to head south. Our grade 8
students, under Mr. Roe’s facilitation, spent a
successful day at LaBarriere Park learning survival
strategies. Everyone had a great time!
With the scheduling of
tri-conferences in mid-October we are in the midst of
curriculum programs and many interesting projects. The
Volleyball practices have begun in full force with the
end to our Cross Country season. The new opportunity for
Flag Football has many team members enthusiastically
participating. Our Grade 7 students will be
participating in the Band Camp or Art Activities on
October 26 and 27. The Grade 9 Community Leadership
students are hosting a Grade 7 – 9 Dance on the evening
of October 27.
Our next two Parent Advisory
Council (PAC) meetings will be held on October 18 and
November 22. These meetings start at 6:30 p.m. at the
school in the staffroom.
Riverwood Square has contacted us
again this year and would like to continue our
partnership. Students have been invited to facilitate
movement workshops for the seniors, participate in a
special luncheon and be the audience for the seniors’
“Festival of Talent”. Our Grade 9 students are involved
with a special project – creating a scrapbook of history
for their senior partner.
November 2 is “Take a Kid to
Work” day and our Grade 9 students will be learning
about skills in a variety of workplaces. We typically
have excellent opportunities planned with Grade 9
students and their families creating an excellent
experience for all.
Photo retakes will be taken on
November 7 with the photos planned to arrive to the
school prior to the winter break. Our HGI Remembrance
Day Service will be held on November 10 at 2:00 p.m.
Parents and community members are invited to attend.
As the weather turns colder, we would like to
remind drivers to be cautious driving through the
school zones. With toques and hats, sometimes
students do not see the traffic and there is
congestion at drop off and pick up times.

Aligned with the Pembina Trails School Division new brand, HGI revised our strategic plan around our four pillars:
Humanity – Growth – Innovation – Sustainability
Humanity: We promote belonging, community, global citizenship, and a healthy learning environment – the groundwork for personal growth and development.
Growth: We seek new experiences as means to cultivate curiosity and realize the true potential for learning.
Innovation: We take the risks and disruptive leaps necessary to align new and relevant goals for learning with our rapidly changing world.
Sustainability: We intentionally infuse sustainability initiatives to connect environmental stewardship, social action, and community partnerships to improve the way we live.
